Group Certification

The environment and workplace safety are two essential topics for us, and this is why we decided to go beyond legal requirements: we decided to implement certified management systems, in compliance with international standards and we refined them by adding of best practices and following the continuous improvement principle, to ensure that the main issues are tackled.

To this end, all operating sites and workplaces are ISO 14001 or OHSAS 18001-certified, depending on the activities they carry out. We decided to share the benchmark standards
and working methods with our suppliers, in the fields of health, safety and minimisation of the environmental impact of our business, these aspects being part of our Code of Ethics and representing some of the key elements in the selection and qualification process of our partners.

Another principle we have extensively adopted is being open and transparent with our stakeholders: this is why our Power and Hydro production plants are EMAS registered (Eco- Management and Audit Scheme, in compliance with the Regulation (EC) 1221/2009). This registration implied drawing up Environmental Statements, which must be updated every year and renewed every three years and are an important communication tool.

We are convinced that only active dialogue and a sustainable development model can ensure continuity and high-quality results, in full respect of the environment and the community. Lastly, we added to our commitments for the 2016-2018 period, the extension of our existing certifications to our affiliates abroad. In this perspective, we will also consider the possibility of certifying our sustainability management system according to the SA8000 standard.

The evolution of certifications after the One Company project

The "One Company" project led to significant changes to the organisational and corporate structure of our Group, to adapt it to our new business model. The project included the centralisation of sales activities and the management of the three complementary production technologies (wind, water and natural gas) within ERG Power Generation (which in late 2016 incorporated ERG Renew and ERG Renew Operations & Maintenance).

From the beginning of 2017, after the centralisation process was completed, a certification review process was started to optimise the existing certificates on the basis of the new organisational set-up. The initial analysis identified the following actions:
  • the environmental (ISO 14001) and safety (OHSAS 18001) certifications held by the wind energy companies will be merged to become ERG Power Generation certifications for the Wind Energy Business management;
  • the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications for ERG Power Generation for the management of the Power and Hydro businesses have not been modified, so they will keep their current form;
  • the EMAS registrations held by ERG Power and ERG Hydro will be maintained and renewed by the two companies.
The OHSAS 18001 certifications held by ERG Services and ERG will be absorbed by ERG itself after the centralisation of the staff functions.

In 2017, further analytical work will be carried out to define a final restructuring plan by the end of the year.
